14: How Far Is Far? The Skies Above with Diane A. Curran

14: How Far Is Far? The Skies Above with Diane A. Curran

February 26, 2019

How Far Is Far? Your Wow Whispering host Diane has been fascinated since childhood with all things skyward, and today we expand upon our new podcast series, The Skies Above.

In this series we honor two traditions which were originally united as one: Astrology and Astronomy. Both derive purpose from seeking to understand the nature of life through explorations beyond Earth. From symbolism to science, humanity want to know more, ever more, about our place in the cosmos.

Today, we’ve got the inventions that lets us leap ahead, as science has allowed us to observe, measure and calculate what’s in our skies, and then to travel beyond what the earliest scientists may ever have dreamed was possible.

Links to what we highlight in today’s podcast includes:

(1) Who invented the telescope?

Jacob Metius from The Netherlands started it all around 1600.

Hans Lipperhey also Dutch, was hired by the Hague to refine it.

Galileo Galilei, an Italian professor and experimenter at the University of Padua, was the third proponent of this new tool, and as a professor, spread the fame and refinements possible with this marvelous new tool, so he is often mis-credited with the original invention.

https://history.aip.org/exhibits/cosmology/tools/tools-first-telescopes.htm

The 10 biggest telescopes in our modern world are listed here. The Gran Telescopio Canaria (CTC) in Spain is 34 feet (10.,4 meters) across, an amazing feat.

https://www.space.com/14075-10-biggest-telescopes-earth-comparison.html

(2) How far is far? Consider the Light-Year.

The light-year is a measure of distance, not time. It is the total distance that a beam of light, moving in a straight line, travels in one year. To obtain an idea of the size of a light-year, take the circumference of the earth (24,900 miles), lay it out in a straight line, multiply the length of the line by 7.5 (the corresponding distance is one light-second), then place 31.6 million similar lines end to end. The resulting distance is almost 6 trillion (6,000,000,000,000) miles!

https://www.grc.nasa.gov/www/k-12/Numbers/Math/Mathematical_Thinking/how_long_is_a_light_year.htm

I learned in school that light travels at 186,000 mile per second, and that nothing travels faster than light. Do you believe that? Listen in for what we reveal about that statement in the podcast!

(3) Are “computers” people or machines?

A surprising answer to that lies at the heart of the fascinating movie “Hidden Figures” (2015, available on Apple’s iTunes and Amazon Prime), which tells the story of early NASA efforts and the pioneering contributions made by three gifted black women:

Katherine Goble Johnson, mathematician

Dorothy Vaughan, mathematician and supervisor

Mary Jackson, mathematician and engineer.

NASA will add to its existing robotic fleet at the Red Planet with the InSight Mars lander set to study the planet’s interior.  The Mars 2020 rover will look for signs of past microbial life, gather samples for future return to Earth and investigate resources that could someday support astronauts.

13: The Skies Above Intro with Diane A. Curran

February 19, 2019

Your host Diane has been fascinated since childhood with all things skyward, and today we briefly introduce a new segment feature on our podcast, The Skies Above.

We will honor two traditions which were originally united as one: Astrology and Astronomy. Both derive purpose from seeking to understand the nature of life through explorations above and beyond Earth.

Humanity is often mesmerized by our local Sun and Moon, the planets we can see with the naked eye, those we later learned inhabit our solar system (thanks to the invention of the telescope) and of course stars, constellations, and heavenly bodies of all sorts, including our modern astronauts and spacecraft vehicles.

NASA stands for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The word Aeronautics derives from the Greek words for "air" and "to sail.” 

Perhaps NASA was thinking of the Astrological sign Aquarius, whose constellation symbolizes a sky traveler pouring energy out into the cosmos. Aquarius is known for invention, innovation, outside-the-box thinking, and ideas.

NCGR stands for the National Council for Geocosmic Research, dedicated to h the highest standards of astrological education and professional skills for professional astrologers. 

With left brain science, and right brain poetic symbolism, we human beings carry on ancient traditions and a modern calling to discover, learn, test, understand, and interpret life in the universe through endless inquiry and exploration.

Join us as we expand this special Wow Whispering series with musings, conversations, and guests drawn from both Astrology and Astronomy, and all they'll reflect of our insatiable human appetite for cosmic communication.

Building on this growing scientific knowledge of our solar system, NASA is developing the most advanced rocket and spacecraft to lead the next steps of human exploration farther into space than we have ever traveled before. 

International Space Station

Humans are already living and working off the Earth in the one-of-a kind research laboratory in microgravity. The International Space Station serves as a blueprint for global cooperation and scientific advancements, a destination for growing a commercial marketplace in low-Earth orbit, and a test bed for demonstrating new technologies. Research on the station is the springboard to NASA’s next great leap in exploration, sending humans into deep space

5: Mindfully Doing Nothing, a Peaceful Practice with Bruce Langford

5: Mindfully Doing Nothing, a Peaceful Practice with Bruce Langford

October 21, 2018

Guest Bruce Langford: “For over a decade, I've been teaching, practicing and studying mindfulness. Trained as an educator, I worked in the school system for 16 years and saw first-hand how mindfulness improves morale, effort, and satisfaction in the workforce.

Shocked by the amount of bullying being swept under the carpet, I transitioned in 2003 from teaching at a school, to empowering teachers and students who participated in my ‘Respect & Anti-Bullying' training programs where Mindfulness played an integral role.

I've now presented over 1,840 live presentations and created content for dozens of training programs. You can listen to me share thoughts and insight on mindfulness, approaching 400 guests on my Mindfulness Mode Podcast."

Please share a “Wow” 

When I knew I would become a podcaster and began planning to create a podcast on how people from all walks of life use mindfulness to become more calm, focused, and happy. I was wowed by the instant success of the Mindfulness Mode podcast and wowed by the number of high profile guests who request on a daily basis to be featured on the show.

Please share a “Whisper” 

When I knew I would transition from being a teacher into bullying prevention work. There were a number of whispers in the months before the transition actually happened.

What do you want listeners to know about you?
